Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: These guys suck

Noise Maker,your post has proved 2 things:you know fuck all about France and fuck all about Marxism. In fact you probably know fuck all about fuck all.
First read srtg 83's post. Then learn something from it.
(Sorry srtg83, can't agree with you that he's "entertaining" - he's just a wanker.)
Have you ever been to France? No. Do you know any French people? No. Do you know how the French sort out political disputes? No. Have you heard the phrase "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" on the Simpsons? Yes - consider yourself now to be an expert on France (ignoring the fact that the Simpsons is an ultra piss-take on the USA.)
How much Marx have you read? None...which is a shame really because it explains why the capitalist system's all fucked up at the moment, and why poor tax-payers are having to give money to rich people who get more in one hour than they earn in one day. (Notice the difference between "get" and "earn". Working people "earn", bankers-read gamblers-"get".)
Don't be frightenened of Marxism or Socialism. Find out about the Wobblies, and be proud of that part of your history. Or perhaps you side with the copper bosses? The "Marxism" that Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter terrify you with is the bastardised version created by the Stalinist middle-class bureaucrats in the USSR a long time ago. Read Orwell rather than listen to those fuckwits.
These elections mean a lot to us in Europe. (And to me personally because I lived and worked for a year in Miami.) We Europeans watched that horrible bombing of the twin towers, and agreed to get the perpretrator bin Laden. As he was a Saudi probably in Afghanistan, we're still wondering why our taxes are going to a war in Iraq. (Rhetorical statement, we know why.) So I'm with the Dead behind Obama. As an atheist I can genuinely say God Bless America, because her people need an end to Republican capitalist greed.

Hey, do you know the way to Haymarket Square? If you get lost, you could end up all the way over in Milwaukee:

Thanks to Alice's history lesson I'll give Milwaukee a miss. I'll get to Chicago one day, just to get to Buddy Guy's. In the mean time it's Halifax tomorrow to watch Stiff Little Fingers. (Yorkshire, not Nova Scotia. Lost my way!)

It's an arlow guthrie song too. I saw him at further fest and some friends and myself thought he was a cardboard cutout on stage. Damn blotter hits.

That was a joke, we are allowed to still make fun of people here.

I used to get the Rolling Blunder Review, which was Arlo's newsletter. His daughter, Sarah Lee, is really "sweet and pretty". She and her husband, Johny Irion, tour/record together and have done a bunch of stuff with my friend that I keep shamelessly plugging - Kevn Kinney (they are on an album Kevn recorded on Warren Haynes' wife's label, Evil Teen, as well as several shows here on the archive.) I could easily see thinking he was a cardboard cutout w/o the blotter. I have a pic of his pappy singing in McSorley's Tavern sitting in my office. Damn red. Hard to abide the same here in Steinbeck county.

I was in camden peaking with some friends and family and we thought we were still in the "hallway" and I heard really quiet music coming in and out like an am radio. I looked over and saw what was really arlo sitting on a stool with an acoustic. For some reason I thought it was a cardboard cutout because he was barely moving if at all and we were as far away as you could get from the stage for some reason. I remember zoning out on the pattern of the brick wall and next thing you know we are going "what the fuck is that, a cardboard cutout?" We thought the show started an hour later but we were wrong. I got into an argument with a friend because he insisted it was a person but the rest of us were in the moment and were sold on the cardboard cutout theory. Some kind concert goer tapped me on the shoulder said, "hey bud, it's not a cardboard cutout, it's arlo guthrie... do you guys have any more of what you are on" I think we gave him some because we surely needed no more.

Before that I was playing a keyboard in the parking lot with an acoustic guitar player and a bongo dude and hadn't dosed on cid in a few years. I don't think I had a ticket and I had already eaten a bunch of mushrooms so how we wound up inside is still is still a mystery to this day.

Usually I forget blackout driking episodes but it may have been the nitrous hippy crack balloons afterwards that volcan mindmelded the memories away.

Hey wait a minute we are not arguing....

During WW2, the French resistance fighters, in their finest hour, bravely threw sticks of dynamite at the advancing German troops. The Germans then lit them and threw them back.

Why a Blue Devil?
The Story of the Duke Mascot

During World War I the Chasseurs Alpins, nicknamed "les Diables Bleus," were well known French soldiers. They first gained attention when their unique training and alpine knowledge was counted upon to break the stalemate of trench warfare in their native region of the French Alps. Unfortunately the Vosges Campaign in March, 1915, failed to alter the status quo even though the Blue Devils won accolades for their courage. However, their distinctive blue uniform with flowing cape and jaunty beret captured public imagination. When the United States entered the war, units of the French Blue Devils toured the country helping raise money in the war effort. Irving Berlin captured their spirit in song describing them as "strong and active, most attractive . . . those Devils, the Blue Devils of France."

As the war was ending in Europe, the Trinity College* Board of Trustees lifted its quarter-century ban of football on campus. After playing an intramural class schedule for one year, Trinity began intercollegiate competition in 1920. That first year the traditional nomenclature of the Trinity Eleven, the Blue and White or the Methodists (as opposed to the Baptists of nearby Wake Forest) described the team. In September, 1921, the student newspaper, The Trinity Chronicle, launched a campaign for a "catchy name, one of our own possession that would be instantly recognizable nationwide in songs, yells and publicity." At a campus pep rally to stir up enthusiasm it was pointed out that Georgia Tech was gaining recognition as the "Golden Tornados" and that rival North Carolina State College had recently adopted the name "Wolf Pack." There were numerous nominations including Catamounts, Grizzlies, Badgers, Dreadnaughts, and Captains which was in honor of the well-liked Coach W. W. "Cap" Card.

Believing a choice utilizing the school color of dark blue to be appropriate, the newspaper editors urged a selection from among the nominations of Blue Titans, Blue Eagles, Polar Bears, Blue Devils, Royal Blazes, or Blue Warriors. None of the nominations won strong favor but Blue Devils apparently had enough support to elicit the criticism that it would arouse opposition on the Methodist campus "for obvious reasons," and that it might prove risky and jeopardize football if a controversial name were used at that particular time. The football season passed with no official selection of a name.

As the campus leaders from the Class of 1923 made plans for their senior year, they decided to select a name since the desired results by democratic nomination and vote had been inconclusive. The editors of The Archive and The Chanticleer, two of the other student publications, agreed that the newspaper staff should choose a name and "put it over." Thus William H. Lander, as editor-in-chief, and Mike Bradshaw, as managing editor, of The Trinity Chronicle began the academic year 1922-23 referring to the athletic teams as the Blue Devils. Their class had been the first post-war freshmen and the student body was full of returning veterans so the name needed no explanation. Acknowledging that it was somewhat unpopular, they nevertheless believed it to be the best name nominated. Neither the other publications nor the cheerleaders used the name that first year. In fact, The Chanticleer made fun of the selection and process by quoting someone saying "We will use blew devvies even if no one else does." Much to the editor's surprise no opposition materialized, not even from the college administration. The newspaper staff continued its use and through repetition, Blue Devils eventually caught on.

Today the origin of the university mascot is virtually forgotten even though its instant, national recognition has long been established. With the popular Red Devil mascot frequently being challenged throughout the country, the origin of Duke's Blue Devil is one of the most often requested items of information in the University Archives. Questioners are universally surprised to discover its origin is more military and patriotic than religious.

* Trinity College became Duke's undergraduate college for men when the University was established in 1924.

...and I'll save Bull Durham for another history lesson when we try and figure out if France and French thought had any impact on our Founding Fathers and our system of government.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: I don't think everyone is listening in this debate

Noise Maker,your post has proved 2 things:you know fuck all about France and fuck all about Marxism. In fact you probably know fuck all about fuck all.

What is this strange vernacular? I know fuck all? Yes fuck em' all I know. You are an expert on France? Tell me they are not socialist. I also know they helped us defeat the imperial taxers in the silly bright red uniforms.

First read srtg 83's post. Then learn something from it.
(Sorry srtg83, can't agree with you that he's "entertaining" - he's just a wanker.)

I did, and he is wrong. I proved it. Read my post. You have poor taste and using the work wanker leads me to believe you are a bright red uniform wearing bloody git. Did I say that correctly old chum? I could care less if you like the music or not, I do it for me. ( at this point no other artist in their left mind wants to be associated with me anymore, imagine that!)

Have you ever been to France? No. Do you know any French people? No.

How do you know this? I do know french people, the french pimp appears on some of my songs. How do you know I did not go to paris before? I can't wait to hear this.

Do you know how the French sort out political disputes? No.

Well their natinoal assembly and senate might have a hand in it. And that sarkozy guy, he seems cool.

Your point?

Have you heard the phrase "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" on the Simpsons? Yes - consider yourself now to be an expert on France (ignoring the fact that the Simpsons is an ultra piss-take on the USA.)

I do know we bail their ass out every 40 years, next time we should let them deal with their own problems. The simpsons are so 90's family guy is where it's at, everyone knows that. Lisa Simpson is a tree hugging traitor.

Do you know me? Accusing me of not knowing things without proof proves your position cannot be taken seriously. I never claimed to be an expert on France nor did I attack anyone's knowlege of any field, I claimed to be an expert on mortgages, which I am, and you ignored that fact to use simpson quotes in an attempt to either make me look stupid or get a few chuckles from the nimwits that also think marxism is cool.

How much Marx have you read? None...which is a shame really because it explains why the capitalist system's all fucked up at the moment, and why poor tax-payers are having to give money to rich people who get more in one hour than they earn in one day. (Notice the difference between "get" and "earn". Working people "earn", bankers-read gamblers-"get".)

What books have I not read? How much orwell, sagan and asimov have I also not read? I do know the the cresent symbol is based on an ancient moon good and why the islamic calendar is lunar from the last book by asimov I just reread. I also am familiar with carl sagan, another pot smoking atheist hero of mine. He writes gooder too.

The communist manifesto is a great read.. so is the bible if you get past the measurments of the temple and 1000 year old people begatting other people and so on. I was practically a marxist, or marxian as true followers sometimes refer to themselves, when I worked in a warehouse in 90 degree heat while the office workers sat in the air conditioning selling the products they never saw before that I loaded onto trucks all day. Then I worked my up and became, guess what? A salesperson who sat in the office knowing more about the products, the item numbers, the weights and shapes of containers, etc.

Don't be frightenened of Marxism or Socialism.

Tell that to eastern europe and Deborah Chesimard also known as Assata Shakur. The europeons may disagree but ASSata will back you up. Maybe the many cuban friends I have know nothing about communism either or why on earth they would swim through hammerhead infested waters to escape it. But I am just some angry rush limberger cheese eating warmonger monkey.

Find out about the Wobblies, and be proud of that part of your history.

Their propaganda is almost as inspiring as the third reich. My history? What the fuck are you talking about? I am a scab and proud of it. Union = mafia. Ever have to park your work truck 3 blocks away so teamsters don't slash your tires? Ever have goons threaten to smash your head in with a sledgehammer because you are working on a job for less than what they held the contractor hostage for to pay their capos? Get real. I used to be a laborer before I got sick of being dirty and physcially tired everyday for less money than the knuckle heads in the suits. (all you have to do is insist you can advance and eventually they let you into the air conditioning!)

Or perhaps you side with the copper bosses?

If they pay well. You got me there.

The "Marxism" that Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter terrify you with is the bastardised version created by the Stalinist middle-class bureaucrats in the USSR a long time ago.

Are you psychic or something? You claim to know what I listen to. I gave my reviews of coulter and limbaugh in this post but YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

Coulter is a douchebag and limbaugh is an arrogant blowhard. They speak truth once in a while but hating them invalidates fact for some apparently.

Read Orwell rather than listen to those fuckwits.

Uhhh, I do. Have you ever read orwell? Some animals are more equal than others... you know like affirmative action and how euroamericans cannot be victims of racism because of some weird double standard. Am I getting through on any of this so far?

These elections mean a lot to us in Europe. (And to me personally because I lived and worked for a year in Miami.)

Because you worked in Miami for a year, our elections mean a lot to you? WTF?

We Europeans watched that horrible bombing of the twin towers, and agreed to get the perpretrator bin Laden.

I thought it was the jews? Ask rosie.

As he was a Saudi probably in Afghanistan, we're still wondering why our taxes are going to a war in Iraq.

Congressional resolution 107-243. Also the UN and many countries, including most likely yours, all signed on. So did both houses of congress. It's all public record.

(Rhetorical statement, we know why.)

Ooops, sorry cart before the horse, ignore my last statement then, I think.

So I'm with the Dead behind Obama.

The image is disturbing, but this is a free country and maybe it still is where you are. No on is trying to stop you from being dead or following obama. Please have at it.

As an atheist I can genuinely say God Bless America, because her people need an end to Republican capitalist greed.

As a hypocrit I can say god bless you when someone sneezes, but it's mostly a pagan ritual passed from ancient egypt when they thought your soul escaped from your nose. I have no problem with christians and don't care about prayers in school unless kids are forced to do them on rugs facing mecca or something. I don't get offended at christmas trees and enjoy the season and believe someone named jesus had some interesting points about life and philosphy. I just don't believe in anything myself, go ahead and worship a rubber dildo if you want, just don't wake me up saturday morning telling me I am going to hell unless I buy your flowers at the airport and put a dot on my forehead.
